EXCEEDING NATIONAL QUALITY STANDARD
(Educational Program and Practice)
I can see the warmth and care provided by the educators to my child and all the children at the Preschool. I like the values that educators instill in the children.
The best Preschool I've ever known since I lived here. Teachers are very kind to the children and centre provides enriched and a variety of teaching contents rather than just let them play for the whole day. Happy for Jeremy, he also likes the centre very much.
The children are well taken care of; provided with a fun variety of activities to engage in. Educators are enthusiastic about teaching and nurturing the children.
I like the feeling of how the Preschool is close-knit and have a sense of community. I like how themes/ interests are explored from the children's likes and interests.
At the core of Kings Road Preschool is the value of each individual child. Questions that guide the inquiry and creativity of children are then transformed into meaningful learning experiences that are facilitated by empathetic and supportive educators. Collaborative learning experiences foster respect and resilience. Beyond the preschool, we can see the benefits of this in our daughter’s interactions with new people and places. We are often taken by surprise by how well our daughter can articulate her opinions on environmental ideas or use her scissors. We know that it is because of her preschool. As parents, we are not only keen observers of this learning journey, we are invited whole-heartedly to provide any input to this community. We are so grateful that we found Kings Road Long Day Preschool because we see our daughter’s little daily achievements as a strong foundation for whatever is ahead in her future.
Kings Road was a great preschool choice for Isabella (and Jed before her). The Preschool is small which allows for more focus on individuals. It's very well managed, hosts a team of friendly staff and was always well maintained, tidy and clean. The outdoor area looks great and Isabella truly loved the school when she attended.
We like the calm and positive nature of the centre and the educators; bringing the best out in Kaian by letting him explore at his own pace; the beautiful art and craft the children are guided through and how everything including the playground is integrated with nature. We would recommend Kings Road in a heart beat.
I wanted to sincerely thank you and the all staff at Kings Road, especially Sue. I was so happy with the school the teachers and the beautiful atmosphere you provided. This has become even more evident now that my child has started “big school”. The program you provided the kids especially “Ants in the Apple” etc have really prepared the children for Kindergarten and has made the transition very easy. The beautiful care and empathy which was taught was the icing on the cake. I feel very confident that Kings Road Long Day Preschool was the best possible place for my child's preschool years, thank you with all my heart.
I am so pleased that my daughter Victoria’s preschool years were at Kings Road Long Day Preschool. She was given the nurturing and support that is so vital for kids at that stage of their development. I found that the centre was really able to support her social and emotional development because of the smaller setup. The educators get to know each child really well and build strong relationships. The preparation for school program was definitely effective as Victoria left Kings Road a confident and involved learner excited for primary school.
Their learning program is engaging and caters to a child's needs and capabilities, achieved in a positive, enabling and nurturing culture. Children are encouraged to explore at their own pace whilst developing important life skills and building foundations in preparation for further schooling.
I have no better reason to travel all the way from Lane cove to Castle hill, other than Kings Road Preschool that I call the second home for my son. The teachers in this preschool are not only qualified but also full of passion and enthusiasm. I’ve been to many other preschools around the area, and what attracted me the most about King’s Road, was the professional teachers and educators, and they’ve been consistently maintaining this standard. Their nurturing and friendly attitude is surely creating a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for the little ones to explore and learn each day. Thank you, teachers, can’t think of a better place than King Road for my son.
Penelope thrived at Kings Road, she would always have positive and happy reflections to tell me.
